The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) is launching the Youth in Agri-Food Export Development Program (YAEDP), a six-month program designed to develop the capacity of 15,000 Nigerian youth, aged 25 – 40 to participate in export.
The program will provide virtual training, market linkages, and digital support to entrepreneurs and co-operative leaders in the agri-food sector across ten states in Nigeria including, Abia, Adamawa, Cross River, Edo, FCT, Kano, Lagos, Kogi, Ogun and Oyo.   

Hmmm!!! Folks, let us say the truth and shame the #devil. Many #Nigerian #non-oil products #exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of #money in the process of #exporting #agricultural #commodities and solid #minerals to #foreign #countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on #export #operations, #management, #documentations and the best methods of #payment in export #trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to #foreigners in the course of export #business. Exporters, would you like to keep on being scammed? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and #packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? It explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? Yes, it is a #contemporary step-by-step #guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on this link:
